"Identity ... one of the words that seem clearest but often treacherous. Its a false friend. We all think we know what the word means and go on trusting it, even when its slyly starting to say the opposite"
Individuals do not define their own identity and gender. The roles of men and women are constantly defined and redefined by societies and cultures, identities as well. Identity is also subject to determine by groups of individuals and social movements. In the city where we live we try to identify and re-connect with it with a different perspective by work with Visual Art, Video Art, Sound Art and Live Performances
